At 1607, Fire Associates members were paged to respond with a Fire Support Unit. John Whiteside, who had been monitoring the event via radio, responded in FSU #3 from San Jose Station 35, arriving before 1700. Soon after John’s arrival, the fourth person was recovered and was also transported to a local hospital. George Hoyt picked up meals and Dan Wong assisted John in setting up equipment. Hot coffee, water, and Clif bars were the favorites, especially for the divers. Fire Associates were released around 1830.
